I’ve been tagged by Aaron at Grandinite into some sort of name-that-book game which is quickly spreading across the blog-o-sphere. I guess I’ll play along. Game On!
As of late, about 99% of my reading tends to lean towards policy reports of the “PSE” flavour and are usually work related. But, when I do read on my own, this is where I lean…
# of Books that I own
I’m gonna wing it and say about 300. I have this really neat set of original classroom textbooks published in 1917 titled “True Stories of the Great War.” They’re such propaganda peices, but a fun read. A lot of text University text books too.
Last book I bought (not including text books):
Last books I read:
*Harry Potter and Philosopher Stone by J.K.Rowling – Such a fun book!
*Digital Fortress by Dan Brown – I borrowed it from my former roommate and forgot to give it back to her. Picture: DaVinci Code at the NSA.
Summa Theologica by St. Thomas Aquinas
Five Books that mean a lot to me.
1.The Discoverers by Daniel J. Boorstin. This is a great book for history buffs. It was a gift from a good friend.
2.History on the Run: The “Trenchcoat” Memoirs of a Foreign Correspondent by Knowlton Nash – One of the best reads I have ever experienced. I picked up the book for $1.50 at a used book store in
3.The Winter Years by James H. Gray – A great book about the depression on the Prairies.
4.The Chronicle’s of Narnia by C.S. Lewis – These were the first series of books I ever read on my own (outside of school). I still think they’re great.
5.Shredding the Public Interest by Kevin Taft – this may seem politically hackish of me, but this book was one of the reasons I began to get involved in politics (way back in good ol’e 1999).
